Review | House

Air date: Monday 9/27

Us rating: *** 1/2

Love is just what the doctor ordered for this aging hit, which has a new vitality now that bristling opposites House (Hugh Laurie) and his boss, Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), have coupled up. In tonight's deftly written tale, the two go public with their relationship, leading hospital coworkers to worry that House will soften his ways and start kowtowing to his paramour. Their concern is tested as House fights to save a dying teen skateboarder (Alyson Stoner). Emotional fireworks ensue, compliments of TV's sharpest pair in eons. (Fox, 8 P.M.)
